    As a father of a slain police officer (Peter A Grignon; EOW 03/23/2005; Louisville, KY PD)
    this senseless shooting brought back all the sad, terrifying emotions.
    Prayers are hugs for the soul. PLEASE offer prayers for Amy (Jason’s wife) and their two sons.
    Also keep the Bardstown Police Department in your thoughts and prayers as they cope with their first line of duty death of a comrade and friend and search for the killer(s).
    Hope Don Grignon
